Made most to win at Brighton in clearcut style in June under Simon Walker; up 4lb to this career-high mark when well beaten at York in July latest, albeit over 2m; her two wins have been over about 1m4f in the mud, so she has to be in calculations.

Often ridden by Brodie Hampson; AW second in August is very much the best of his last five starts, with the latest a heavy defeat at Bath on Monday; that sparks concern but he was a front-running second in this race on heavy ground last year off 11lb higher than today.
